From their website:
Our new album, Haymaker, is a 2-disc set, containing 22 tracks, 84 minutes of music, and features legendary drummer and bodhrán player Josh Dukes, as well as two tracks with our good friends The Murphy Beds (Eamon O’Leary and Jefferson Hamer). Each of the discs is a cohesive listening experience and can be enjoyed on its own, or in conjunction with the other.

Tracking for Haymaker was completed over the course of one week, in January 2014, and the album includes every piece that we recorded over that week. The album was recorded by Grammy Award-winning engineer Glenn Barratt at Morning Star Studios in Pennsylvania, with the help of co-engineer and co-producer Sean Keegan.

Isaac Alderson - flute, uilleann pipes, tenor saxophone, whistle
Dylan Foley - fiddle, whistle
Dan Gurney - button accordion
Sean Earnest - guitar, bouzouki
and featuring…
Josh Dukes - drums, bodhrán
Jefferson Hamer - vocals, mandolin
Eamon O’Leary - vocals, bouzouki

Foley update

The Yanks’ fiddler, Dylan Foley, won the 2014 Senior All Ireland Fiddle Championship in Sligo a few weeks ago.

I have to preface by saying that I absolutely love the Yanks music. But is anyone else a bit thrown off by the drum set backing half the sets? Something with the mixing just makes it sound like arrhythmic distortions over otherwise very nice tunes.

The tracks without drums are absolutely lovely.
